Why Nintendo said no to Wii U downloads to SD Cards

In a disappointing move, Nintendo are not supporting SD Cards with Wii U downloads – but it’s all in the interest of Nintendo’s ‘immediate gaming’ philosophy. (Tech, Wii U)

Anything that plugs into the usb ports...
I believe (so it's a yes to your question).

SD to USB adaptor?

@azshorty2003
I think there're usb adaptors that support sd cards.

"SD to USB adaptor?" laughed my arse off.

We all know they did this as a precaution to piracy. Lets be honest, ultimately the WiiU will be hacked, but the longer Nintendo can put it off the better. If people didn't hack consoles so they could pirate games than maybe we wouldn't be in this situation. But people do, so you have to understand some of the limitations. Still it's not really a big deal considering how cheap external usb drives can be.

It's why we can't use SD cards for the Vita too.
Piracy sucks.

Wow guess I didn't realize that the Wii U's disc read was 2 1/2 times faster than the PS3. Though I guess it makes sense with it being an early blu-ray drive.

Yeah, it's unlikely that the drive in the the PS4 will be as slow.

Duh... No next gen console disc drive will be as slow as PS3. I can put money on that lol. Especially since the Wii U has put up a higher standard disc drive. You have to give Nintendo credit for that. It's definitely a good improvement and I can't wait to buy a Wii U. PS4 will probably be in my collection next year also.

Yes it's a very quick drive. It's something people overlook when it comes to the systems graphics and power. streaming needs quick speeds. Games will run better with less pop up and lag.

Yeah but it's also up to Devs to utilize what you're given to avoid all if not most of those problems!
quantae06  +   657d ago
@neogeo Yep!
